This map of the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair, compliments of F.W. Woolworth Co. has maps of Manhattan and her boroughs (including a "new transit map of greater New York") as well as the fair. The back of the brochure has an ad for Borden's "Dairy World of Tomorrow" exhibit and for Woolworth's Fountain and Lunch Counter, which boasts a 25 cent turkey dinner!

    I remember many lunches (mostly ice-cream) at the Woolworth's Fountain and Lunch Counter.
